So many old "century bank barns"
are no longer in use and
are being dismantled
When I saw two of these lovely old buildings
coming down right in our neighbourhood,
I grabbed the camera to capture some
photos of those amazing exposed
I always feel so small when I stand in
the barn and look up at the rafters
I love the lingering smell of sweet hay,
the streams of dusty sunlight shining
through the gaps in the barn boards.
It makes me remember how sad my father
felt when our barn was taken down
many years ago
It was his livelihood and identity as a farmer.
Though he knew it was no longer needed
and that it would be replaced
by new and modern buildings in the future.
It is the end of an era!
Till next time .......... lets remember and appreciate these great old barns!
